FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OFFICIAL STATEMENT

3rd November 2014

PLEASE LET’S MOURN THE PRESIDENT WITH DIGNITY

Fellow country men and women I am passionately appealing to each and every PF member to search their hearts and see if what they are doing right now shows respect to the late President HE Michael Sata.

The events that are unfolding right before us this evening after acting president Guy Scott fired Edgar Lungu and replaced him with Chipili MP Davies Mwila, leading to PF cadres and students reportedly demonstrating against that decision must stop forthwith. This is a direct dishonour to the late President HE Michael Sata. I am appealing to PF leaders starting with acting President Guy Scott to show restraint and leadership in this trying time. I am also calling on every Zambian to make it their duty to safeguard the integrity and reputation of Zambia. What is happening has the potential of sending a wrong signal to the rest of the world especially that Zambia has a global reputation of being an oasis of peace and has always managed transitions with dignity and admiration.

There are visitors who are on their way to Zambia to mourn the late President with us, let us not make it difficult for visitors to commiserate with us. My heart bleeds to see that confusion seems to be engulfing the ruling party even before President Michael Sata is put to rest. I urge all Zambians from all corners of the country to put aside their differences and mourn the departed leader with dignity. There is time for everything; we shall have time for politics but right now lets mourn our departed elder. I am not asking for too much just 14 days country men and women.

We are slowly forgetting the basic fundamentals that bring us together, Ubuntu and Christianity. Please fellow countrymen and women let us get back on track. Let good prevail over evil. His Excellency President Sata was a national asset and we should not allow a few people to desecrate and disgrace his funeral.

My call is simple, Zambians let us put our differences aside until at least the 12th November 2014 and direct all our energies towards this one common tragedy. Let us join hands and mourn our President in peace and harmony. I am pleading with all well-meaning Zambians to kindly take heed and not lose focus on the matter at hand. Dr Kaseba, the children and grand-children need us now to be by their side and support them through this difficult time and not abandon them because of political expediency.

May the soul of President Sata rest in peace.

I thank you

Hakainde Hichilema
UPND President

  1. Thank You Mr. President HH. WISE & MATURE.
    I demand the same from my ex-president Miyanda. Do something elderly here and today or before 11th… please please Calm-down the people, I know you can do it.
    Yes Lungu messed-up by giving that “Solomon interview”, but you know what so many will make mistakes. Guy Scott just made one huge mistake, and he said he was over reacting.

    • Thank you My Incoming President HH. Wise words indeed. On the other hand, I am sorry to say that this confusion in PF can only be blamed on Mr Sata himself. Even in death it’s don’t kubeba. He should have sorted out this mess way before he even got sick, i.e. removing Guy Scott as vice president. I know we are not allowed to attack or blame the dead. But I can say that Mr Sata (MHSRIEP) has really left us in a mess like Bashi Nono said. We have got a big problem here, and the big problem is Guy Scott.

    • This is leadership HH. If your words don’t sink in the PF membership especially their leadership, then damn them!

    • I foresee a scenario in which Guy Scott Resigns tomorrow from PF and politics altogether. This will leave Zambia in a very desperate situation. President HH should go further than this later and actually call Scott and have a chat with him. I believe Scott was within his legal rights to fire Lungu but the timing was off. I have no sympathy for PF or sata for that matter, but I do care about Zambia and I worry that things may spin out of control tomorrow. This is the time for the police to be extremely alert. We are on the brink of a civil war in Zambia. Banda, Mumba, Chipimo and HH must hold a press conference tomorrow and call for all Zambians to calm down and allow Scott to lead. May God have mercy on you all!!

    • Thats my president talking, not any PF minions lining up for plot 1. He is the man to bring sanity to PF. Most PF members should swallow their pride and rally under HH for sanity and complete peace to return to Zambia.

      Zambians have seen enough of these Panga Fights, and normality after the burial of the president.

      UPND and HH are the only Hope and Help for Zambia.

      Viva HH and UPND, the most organised and peaceful party in Zambia.

    • There is the man of the moment, all the voters need is to look at the leadership style and know we have a leader in HH

    • PROBLEMS FOR PF
      1. PF has no credible leaders to steer this country forward. They are specialised in telling lies and causing confusion.
      2. The late Mr. Sata CURSED the leaders when he declared them USELESS and only dull people wouldn’t agree with Mr. Sata.
      3. PF is very uncoordinated and disoriented = Chimbwi no plan.
      4. PF is a very dangerous party due to the violent behaviour. (Panga Family)

    • Who’s HH, being in diaspora for more than 20 years without a home visit puts me in a position of not knowing some scumbags like HH.

  2. That’s an exemplary HH for you…a man of dignity who will not spit fire or be politicking like a cobra in times of grief.

  3. HH has always been humble, kind and generous. That is all some of us have all along known him to be. With the departure of most tribalists to other parties, HH and UPND has a future in Zambian politics.

    The pact with PF failed because of fear by some PF bigwigs of stiff competition for positions with quality UPND leaders. Ba Winter must have vowed never to allow such competition which he knew he could never win.
    As for now, let the burial take place. Thereafter, let the humble Zambian voter prove to cadres that they have the last say. Please voters, use your heart, brain and your own judgement to chose the right person and party. Pray to God for wisdom. Remember to vote for kindness, humility and love, not tribe and intimidation by cadres and thugs.

  4. soon it ll dawn on us all sata was actualy the best and those who have blogged dung about him ll be gnashing their teeth as muzungu opusa and the cartel take the reigns. This is immaturity of scott to start sowing seed of discontent before we bury our dear leader.

  5. Those who are chosen by God will not use underhand methods to ascend to the throne. They will wait upon the Lord and renew there strength. For they know that promotion and favor don’t come from the north or south but from the Lord. Though David was severely persecuted by the wicked and evil king Saul, when he learned of Saul’s death, he chronicled a poem to mourn the fallen leader: “How are the might fallen.” Reading his poem shows how deeply troubled David was at the demise of a man whom he could have rightfully thought his death was good riddance. True leaders will show character and leadership during a crisis. As it has been once said, that, “a man’s true caliber is determined in a crisis.” Time has come to separate men from boys.

  6. Didnt sata ask him to work with him and he refused? what can he say this time. lungu Edgar is our next president period. if he can give out companies,bring poison meet what heart does he have for this country?

  7. PF is not a Party of Fools for nothing. They should appoint HH as their Acting President during the next 90-Days to bring order to their immature and thuggish behaviour. HH has said before about “Muzungu opusa” and you thought he was being malicious. Now you know the truth.

  8. PF came from zero to glory while others are coming from glory to zero. God made Scott to make that mistake to expose him. Belv me he has learnt a lesson tho in a hard way. lets suport lungu and move forward

  9. who is mourning Sata? His son Mulenga who has certified his father, “The last old president” even before his body is laid to rot?
    Mwelwa, the daughter with her bright red lipstick and weave on? Not a tear shed even while her mother ‘explodes’ before her eyes when viewing the old man?No remorse shown.
    These are the people who ‘chewed’ his money. If they are not mourning, why should we?

  10. i pray to god to give us this man and forget about this party that has not cared for the poor people please listen to him let us mourn the late in dignity and peace. the mistake was you people could not correct all this mess when the president was still alive you went on cheating as usual dont ku beba till now see.

  11. Crocodile tears…………….upbeat of politicians.God has already chosen the next leader of Zambia.Let all opposition Leaders come on board and have a round table to look for which way forward.Whether you are NAREP,MMD,UPND or PF and any other smaller parties one man show parties should come and air their valuable ideas.We have just remained with one year.Why should the Country have excess expenditure when we have infrastructure programmes going on in various parties of the Country?Law is there to guide us we understand very well on the happenings.

  12. HH SHOULD STAND IN THE FORTHCOMING PRESIDENTIAL BY-ELECTIONS,AND DELIVER THIS COUNTRY FROM PF VIOLENCE AND CONFUSION. PF HAVE TOLD US TOO MANY LIES AND WITH THE DEATH OF MICHAEL SATA PF IS FINISHED.HH WILL COMPLETE THE VISON OF MICHAEL WHICH THE TWO HAD BEFORE WYNTHER CONFUSED THINGS IN THE PACT. THE PACT WAS FULL OF INSULTS AND DISRESPECT ,AND FAILURE TO AGREE ON SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC PROGRAMMES BECAUSE PF WAS MORE INTERESTED IN POSITION OF POWER THAN ON ECONOMIC PROGRAMMES.I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT HH CAN FIT WELL IN SATA’S SHOES, NOT THESE DISORGANISED HYENAS FIGHTING EVEN BEFORE OUR DEPARTED LEADER IS BURIED.LETS TRY HH GUYS DONT JUDGE THE MAN ON TRIBAL GROUNDS WE NEED TO EMBRACE ALL TRIBES THATS WHAT BROT PEACE TO THIS COUNTRY.TRIBALISM IN NOT THE WAY TO GO.

  13. I agree we need to try this HH, he seem to be well organized, humble and intelligent than any of these useless ministers in pf. indeed sata was pf and pf was sata.

  14. I have not been a fan of LK but so far the bloggers of the media show exemplary maturity. LK has good bloggers who think before waffling and I applaud you for that. This has nothing to with this article but this is just where I think my submission will be seen by the bloggers.

  15. HH should appeal to the Bemba vote otherwise he cannot make it.so he has a lot to do to convince these people who always think that they are the ruling class.

    • @yebo soup
      you are a dandahead full tribal rot. why should you always think if someone is not voted for by bembas, the they have lost it. you need teed to look at the whole country and urge the citizens to vote a right candidate be it bemba or not they need to vote wisely. you are actually polluting bembas who will think that is the right way to go. have respect for bembas and the rst of the country. if you are tribal yourself remain with it. this idea of trying to down p[lay matters is bad. we are a struggling economy, these are not times to bring jokes.

  16. I HEAR THE OFFICE OF THE DC IN KITWE IS SEALED BY PF CADRES DEMANDING FOR THE REMOVAL OF GUY SCOT AS ACTING PRESIDENT. GOD HELP US AND DELIVER THE COUNTRY FROM THESE THUGS WE GAVE POWER IN 2011. LETS NOT MAKE ANOTHER MISTAKE BY KEEPING THESE VIOLENT THUGS IN POWER AGAIN THIS COMING JANUARY 2015 BYE ELECTION.HH IS THE WAY FORWARD.

  17. Great Message to All Zambians!

    Zambians, particularly PF members, should go beyond the 12th October, 2014 in being peaceful. Calls that the behavior of our Acting President is un-Zambian or un-African is also misplaced if not racist. The entire scenario, behavior of PF members, is just simply inhuman!!! Whether you are in Europe or indeed any other part of this world, decency in such matters don’t vary so much. The Great Galilean once said if you want to build peace, humble yourself. If your enemy slaps you on the right cheek, let him/her slap your left cheek too.

    Lets guard our peace jealously and allow decency and Christian values to guide us. Indeed, there is time for sunshine and time for cloud cover. For now lets mourn our Beloved Late President in Peace. MHSRIP

  18. HH IS THE BETTER OPTION THIS TIME IV CAREFULLY ANALYSED ALL THE LEADERS IN VARIOUS POLITICAL PARTIES,CHIPIMO MOVES WITH THE WIND SO IS NAWAKI THEY ARE’ KWALOLA MWELA EKO TWALOLA’ CHIPIMO DOES NOT HAVE AN MP SO IS NAWAKWI.THERE PARTY STRUCTURES ARE ALMOST NON EXISTENCE IN MOST PARTS OF THE COUNTRY OUTSIDE LUSAKA.
    COSMO IS A PERFECT ***** WHO FAKED THAT HE FAINTED TO GAIN POLITICAL RECOGNITION.MIYANDA CANT BE TRUSTED,MAGANDE IS A GOOD MGR NOT A LEADER,MILUPI UNCLASSIFIED.

  19. Please Zambians, lets forget our differences at this time of Mourning. One Zambia One Nation should bring us together. Avoid doing thongs that will cause war in our country. please titwakazyibila kulwana ndakomba. Bembas mind you even a Tonga can be a leader and a good leader for that matter. mwalibelesha ukulwa

  20. Our God we speak as your children and with the authority you’ve given to us. May you expose every machination by the devil. expose every plot that is not good for Zambia. Lord its not everything that people say is good that youve approved. people wanted a king in the bible and you gave them but that wasnt your will. we speak that even if someone is popular, he or she will still lose as long as they are not in your will. we speak confusion in every camp that doesnt have the interest of zambia at heart. you oh God are no respector of a person or political party. we speak a curse upon whoever will rise to do lufyengo on your people or twalafilila mumusenga. devil you are liar. i now speak the blood of Jesus upon Zambia. IN JESUS Name i have prayed and declared AMEN.
